There are certain moments in life that stay with us for all time. They are the game-changers of our existence and somehow, we’ll never be the same. I think all of experience these moments of revelation.
I wrote this during one of those moments of such vivid clarity:
I found myself under the years of walls I’d built around me to stay safe.
I found true peace, true joy and true love.
I found out what it means to stop thinking about myself
and to start thinking about others.
I found out that I’m surrounded by real people with real lives.
I found out what it means to make real sacrifices.
I found friendship in the most unlikely of places.
I found strength I never thought I had.
I found the answers to many challenging situations.
I found a new boldness to stand out rather than fit in.
I found the truth about who holds the keys to my heart and soul.
I found out – it’s not all about me, how capable I am, or how much I can do or who I need to impress.
I found closure.
I found peace
I found a free and full life.
